Rose & Rhubarb. Drink Me.


I am dreaming of this over ice. On a very hot day.

I went to The Beast and picked it all. Au revoir rubarbe.



Roses are plentiful in front of our house, so I decided to add a few to the mix for color.



Rose and Rhubarb Syrup

Rhubarb
Sugar
Thyme
Basil
Rose petals.

I simmered the rhubarb and sugar for about 4 hours. Then added the herbs for about 40 minutes and the rose petals for the last 10. Adjust the sugar to your liking. Strain.
